Starbucks Ditches Jewish Group From Anti-Bias Training Over Non-Support of BLM

Published

on

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL for short), a group dedicated to combatting anti-semitism in the United States has been dropped from an anti-bias training session put on by Starbucks.

The session was due to be put on next month, but the coffee giant faced severe backlash from activists for having ADL as part of the activity, so they’ve opted to boot them from playing a role in developing the training that will be held on May 29.

The reason why?

They don’t support the anti-Semitism coming out of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Here’s more from The Hill:

Starbucks committed to closing most of its stores for an anti-bias training day after a viral video showed two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting for a friend without purchasing anything. The ADL was originally part of the company’s team developing the curriculum for the training.

Activists criticized Starbucks for involving the ADL over the organization’s support for Israel and failure to endorse the Black Lives Matter movement. The group announced in 2016 that it would not fully endorse the movement over some leaders’ “anti-Israel — and at times anti-Semitic — positions.”

Tamika Mallory, an organizer of the Women’s March, posted on Twitter that the ADL is “constantly attacking black and brown people,” and criticized Starbucks as “tone deaf” for involving the group.

Black Lives Matter D.C. accused the ADL of being “ultra pro-cop.”

Starbucks said in an April 24 press release that the ADL would be consulted on “longer-term changes,” but did not name the group or its leaders in the section on the May 29 training.

Riley, the spokeswoman for Starbucks, has denied booting ADL over the pressure the company has received.

So fighting racism and bigotry is only acceptable, praiseworthy, and celebrated so long as the objects of said fight aren’t Jewish? That’s more or less the message being sent by Starbucks’ decision to remove the ADL from the training session.

This may not have been what they intended, but it’s certainly the way it looks.

Not reaching out to this group appears to be a glaring inconsistency in the company’s race policies, but then again, inconsistency is really the only thing consistent about liberalism.

Pro-Trump Lawyer Drops Huge ‘Q’ Hint, Crowd Goes Wild

WHOA…

Donald Trump may not be in office anymore, but his political power remains very firmly intact thanks to his wide web of supporters and their undying belief in his message. Among those followers are the “Q” disciples:  Americans who’ve created a community around a mysterious internet poster who has seemingly promoted Trump’s secret war against the Deep State via his cryptic breadcrumbs. Now, as No. 45 continues to contemplate his next political move, one pro-Trump lawyer is sending the Q world into a frenzy. Pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood received a standing ovation on Friday when he made “Q” gestures during a speech and appeared to link the QAnon conspiracy to a religious revival in the U.S. Wood, a prominent Georgia lawyer, was speaking at the Health and Freedom Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He told the crowd that former President Donald Trump had won the 2020 election and was still president. And then.. Wood briefly discussed his personal life and his four divorces, jokingly comparing himself to the Hebrew King David, who had nine wives, to the appreciation of the crowd. “But God forgave me, for as I’ve come to believe, God planned it,” Wood said. “He plans every detail of your life. He knows how many hairs are on your beautiful head. And he uses your sins and he uses your shortcoming to teach you so that when the time comes that he’s ready and you’ve been learning – watch out for this next move.” “He’s going to rebirth you into the spirit world and create exactly the person that he intended you to be,” Wood said while drawing a “Q” with his right index finger. “There’s your Q,” he said, drawing the letter in the air again. “Q!” The audience applauded and some began cheering in what quickly turned…

DC Statehood Incoming: House Set to Vote Within Days

Biden and his team are wasting no time setting up ways to stack the electoral deck in their favor.

Joe Biden and his cohorts in the Democratic Party are doing everything in their power to never lose another election again, and they are doing so with all the subtlety and grace of a three-legged hyena that stepped into a yellow-jacket nest. First and foremost, there are their recently-revealed plans to pack the Supreme Court with several new justices during Joe Biden’s first term. Now they’re looking to make good on their long-held pipe dream of making Washington DC its own state…and they are wasting no time. The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on whether to make Washington, D.C., a State. The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), voted the bill, H.R. 51, out of committee by a vote of 25-19 to create D.C. statehood Wednesday. But there are likely constitutional issues at play here. The ultimate argument seems to be whether the 23rd Amendment guarantees the federal Capitol at least three electors in presidential elections, Rep. Any Biggs (R-AZ) suggested Wednesday. Biggs’ view is supported by legal scholars, who opposed D.C. statehood’s feasibility without a Constitutional amendment to the 23rd Amendment. The Office of Legal Counsel in 2007 believed it was unconstitutional, the Justice Department under former President Reagan and former President Carter stated the transformation was unconstitutional, and so did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The move is highly controversial, and twenty-two state attorney generals have already sent a stern letter warning President Joe Biden about the danger of moving forward.
